yum Yum Yum is all I have to say about this recipe! The strawberry gives the beets and added sweetness with a slight fruitiness. We have really been enjoying beets in our salads and as a side dish of their own. These cook up very easily, and give you a fantastic strawberry balsamic dressing for your salad! We really enjoy eating them chopped up and topped with feta and a little fresh pepper.
heres what you need:
3 quart crockpot
6–9 beets depending on their size
1/4 c strawberry Preserve
1/4 c Olive oil
2 tbs balsamic vinaigrette
Salt and pepper to taste
After washing your beets, begin by cutting the top and base off and then peeling your beets. I highly recommend wearing a pair of food grade gloves as beets can easily stain the skin.
now you are ready to mix up your strawberry vinaigrette! Combine remaining ingredients into a bowl and mix well with a fork or spoon.
next you want to cut enough pieces of aluminum foil so each beet has one to be wrapped in.
place a beet in the center of a piece of aluminum foil and gently curl the foil halfway up the beet.
spoon dressing on top of the beet so it is evenly coated and then wrap beet up completely.
spray your crockpot with a vegetable base oil and place all of your wrapped beets inside. Cook on low 5–6 hours.
once done, remove the beats and gently unfold aluminum foil. Save the juice inside the foil as this makes a delicious salad dressing!
dice the beets up to use as a side dish or topping for a salad.
